The Goodbye Girl
TheatreZone’s The Goodbye Girl is Neil Simon’s 1993 Broadway adaptation of his Academy Award-nominated 1977 film. The Broadway production starred Martin Short and Bernadette Peters and received Tony Award nominations for best musical, best actress in a musical and best actor in a musical. The plot centers on a struggling actor who has sublet a Manhattan apartment from a friend and the current occupants — his friend’s ex-girlfriend and her precocious young daughter. The famed comedy is an adventure about love and commitment, with music scored by Marvin Hamlisch and with lyrics by David Zippel. It is also known for coining the phrase “The Goodbye Girl Syndrome” which describes a woman abandoned by a boyfriend. But in The Goodbye Girl, true love blossoms and the story ends happily when the curtain falls.
